    Leave him be, missus. Hell hath no fury like a plugger un-seated.

    Your a plugger if you have adult-onset diabetes and would rather pop a pill than exercise.

    and some pluggers realize what is good for a soreness. is more of what made it sore in the first place. this includes long walks..

    Sangelia: Quite true. We have a bumper pecan crop this year – and I am finally feeling much better after initial back spasms.

    Come back and talk after arthritis has made a mess of your knees, and bone spurs in your hips have made it virtually impossible to walk for any distance. It’s easy to portray someone as fat and lazy from a youthful perspective, I suppose.

    My other half has type 2 diabetes. No amount of excercise will repair the circulatory and nerve damage in the feet; the fragile capilliaries in the eyes and all the other side effects of the disorder.

    What about the consumption of whole foods that Dr. Oz always talks of?

    Most Pluggers I know don’t depend on needing to get in the car and drive to a far-off gym somewhere. Most Pluggers I know have an Exercise Bike or a Treadmill in the living room. That way, they can exercise and watch TV at the same time!

    We eat as many “whole foods” as we can. Low GI is always better and whole grain bread, rice, pasta are always on our menu. I’ve always preferred whole foods, anyway.
    My other half isn’t on insulin but uses one of the synthetic enzymes that are available these days as well as tablets, some of which result in unpleasant side effects.

    You have absolutely NO idea what you’re talking about!!!!! Dr. Oz is a real doctor who wants to help people solve real problems. He is a huge advocate of doing whatever you can naturally — exercising, eating healthier, taking vitamins, stopping smoking, etc. — FIRST in order to help you improve your life so that surgery is your absolute LAST resort . . . and that’s coming from a man who’s a heart surgeon!!!!!
